To create her nocturnal photographs, Eileen Counihan spends hours in the daylight scouting the location and searching the landscape to find "just the right spot" that she'll return to long after sunset. Then, with the dark, moonless night sky as her “canvas", she creates the image using only one shot. Counihan uses extended exposures to capture the stars while simultaneously “painting” with standard incandescent and LED flashlights to illuminate the foreground subjects.
Camera, lens, tripod, flashlights and weather appropriate clothing such as: mosquito netting, hiking boots, mud boots, snow boots, thermal underwear, etc. Transportation and lodging environmentally appropriate, i.e. tent, camper, RV, 4-wheel drive,
Eileen Counihan's photographs are generally available in two styles: Giclee on paper and metal prints. If you're interested in other types of prints, such as acrylic, we're happy to help find the perfect display material for your image.
These metal prints are created by infusing dyes with extreme heat and pressure directly into a coated aluminum sheet. Counihan's star-filled night images combined with the metal printing technique are amazingly vibrant with infinite luminescence. The result is not only an exceptional piece of art, but a conversation piece.
